Baghdad The Prime Minister, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, chaired today, Sunday, an emergency meeting of the National Security Council, during which the recent security developments were discussed, and the development of effective mechanisms was discussed to prevent the recurrence of security breaches in Kirkuk Governorate.

At the beginning of the meeting, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces offered his condolences to the sons of the Armed Forces and the families of the victims who were martyred in Kirkuk Governorate.

Al-Kadhimi stressed the weakness of the enemy’s capabilities, but mismanagement and sometimes negligence in the work of military leaders lead to some violations, stressing the importance of developing new mechanisms to avoid recurring security incidents.

He stressed the need to activate the role of the intelligence services, and to find effective coordination mechanisms between the various security and military institutions to avoid violations.

The Prime Minister directed the formation of the Central Committee to investigate these violations and prevent their recurrence.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces stressed: “The Kirkuk governorate is characterized by its diversity, and there are those who seek to create sedition, especially as we are heading to fateful elections.”

Al-Kadhimi was briefed on the report of the security leaders on the causes of the accident, and gave his directives to improve the performance of the security forces and prevent the recurrence of security breaches.

He was instructed to carry out a qualitative, proactive process, which prevents sleeper cells from re-forming and repeating violations.
